Year 1

THIS TERM AT A GLANCE - Autumn Term

We will begin the Autumn term with our topic ‘Rise of the Robots’! We will explore different materials and joining techniques before designing and creating our own incredible robots out of junk modelling. In Science we will be investigating seasonal changes and answering the question ‘What happens in Autumn?’ This will include looking at physical changes and recording observations of the weather in charts. We will also be identifying specific plants that grow on the school site and what they look like in Autumn including naming the different parts of the plants. In History we will learn how communication has changed over time. We will begin to look at early forms of communication such as Morse code, telephones and the printing press. In Computing we will learn about algorithms and create an algorithm to move a Beebot around the classroom.
